marcum lx-5 quick question

8 posts in this topic

What is the difference between the lx-5's with 2000 watts compared to the new ones with 2500 watts. Is it that much of an advantage to get a new one? I can get a deal on a 2007 lx-5 but don't want to buy it if the new ones are a lot better.

I think you would be happy with either one. If you can get a good deal on the 2000W one, I'd probably do it.

I guess it would also depend on how much of a price difference.

The new LX-5's have 500 watts more, back lit SFL and NBT, Patent Pending "Auto Tune" which is like having a sonar engineer right inside your unit. From checking out the built in Demo between this year and last year LX-5's the screen is definitely enhanced more. Can't wait to run mine on the ice.

Is there any difference in battery life between them?

CNY Tim I have been using my new LX-5 for a few weeks now and man what a difference between it and my old LX-3! Screen is way easier to read and I like the color scheme. I can read the smallest gills hangin on the bottom and its easier to read in the sun. Im glad I switched.

Maybe I better just put up the cash and get the new one so I don't second guess myself all winter.

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
